The Pinto and the Pendulum, by Dr. Sage Desmet Poe
A Cryptic Short Story
…Galileo sees something that countless eyes had never noticed: Whether the pendulum makes a long or short swing, the time it takes hence and forth always remains the same.
Contrary to what Galileo thought, pendulums do not always swing for exactly the same amount of time. Sometimes it takes just a little longer, sometimes just a little less time to complete the movement.
What’s more, the aforementioned pattern is unique to each pendulum.
Galileo’s pendulum illustrates a universal law. The logic and rational explanation of a natural phenomenon—however comprehensive it may be—always make an abstraction of that phenomenon. Theoretical models never capture anything fully; they always leave an unexplained remainder. This remainder is not just insignificant, random unexplained “noise.” It is the essence of the object. It is its living component.

The Pinto and the Pendulum
The Doctor was brought to trial before the sinister judges of the Vaccine Inquisition charged with offenses of Early Treatment Wrongthink.
As seven tall white candles on a table slowly burn down, the Doctor feels his hopes of survival diminishing as well. He is condemned to death by the Pfizer Overlords, whereupon he faints and later awakens to find himself in a totally dark room.
At first the Doctor thinks that he is locked in a tomb, but then he discovers that he is in a cell. He decides to explore the cell by placing a scrap of his white coat against the wall so that he can count the paces around the room, but he faints before he can measure the whole perimeter.
When he reawakens, he discovers food and water nearby. He tries to measure the cell again, and finds that the perimeter measures one hundred steps. While crossing the room, he trips on the hem of his doctor’s scrubs and falls, his chin landing at the edge of a Ford Pinto. He realizes that had he not tripped, he would have fallen into the rear of the Pinto setting off the Exploding Gas Tank.
After losing consciousness again, the Doctor discovers that the prison is slightly illuminated and that he is strapped to a wooden frame on his back, facing the ceiling. Above him is a picture of Father Anthony Fauci, with a razor-sharp pendulum measuring "one foot from horn to horn" suspended from it.
The pendulum is swinging back and forth and slowly descending, designed to kill the Doctor eventually. However, he is able to attract fellow prisoner experimental subject beagles to him by smearing his bonds with the meat left for him to eat. The grateful beagles chew through the straps, and he slips free just before the pendulum can begin to slice into his chest.
The pendulum, sensing its own living component, withdraws into the ceiling, but the walls of the cell then become red-hot, and emblazoned with Bill Gates insignias, start to move inwards, forcing the Doctor slowly toward the center of the room and into the Pinto. As the fiery Bill Gates walls approach the gas tank and begins to topple inwards, the Pendulum descends out of the ceiling of the tomb and smashes into the front of the vehicle, spinning the vulnerable gas tank from the encroaching doom. The Doctor then hears a roar of voices and trumpets, the walls retract, and the Pendulum slows. The Doctor grabs up the beagles and tucks them tight to his chest under his white doctor’s coat, and climbs aboard the pendulum as it pulls him upwards to safety.
The Truth in Vaccine Army has captured the Swamp of Washington DC and the Vaccine Inquisition has fallen into its enemies' hands.
Happy Heidi Endings.
Addendum: I forgot to mention that the Experimental Meat Eating Beagles were also pulled to safety.

"Unintended consequences always happen."
However, they're not always "unintended" as many would have you to believe...
